Nathan McBride, “the most brutally effective thriller hero to appear in years” (Ridley Pearson, author of Killer Weekend), returns in the third installment of one of the best new series in thriller fiction.
When Nathan McBride receives a text message from someone who claims she’s been kidnapped, it triggers a deadly chain of events that has the potential to haunt him for the rest of his life. Nathan will soon learn that nothing from his past could ever prepare him for the crisis he’ll soon be facing. The girl’s name is Lauren and she’s just 12 years old. With virtually no experience with children, Nathan’s patience and compassion are about to be tested to their limits.
In a violent confrontation, Nathan rescues Lauren from her kidnapper, but as he unravels Lauren's story, he realizes his troubles are only beginning. She says she's in the Witness Security Program, and doesn't trust the US Marshals because she thinks they're complicit in her abduction. Not only that, her stepdad was murdered last night.
In a desperate and unlikely alliance, Nathan and Lauren must stay one step ahead of her kidnapper and the brutal mercenaries who will kill anyone who gets in their way. Played out over the course of 36 lightning-fast hours, Nathan and Lauren must learn to trust each other or they won’t survive.

I am an avid eclectic reader.
When I read the first book in this series I was trying out a new author, and was happy with the book, we are now at book three and I must say I am delighted with the series so far. Dick Hill is one of my favorite narrators and he did his usual great job with this book. I like the way Peterson stays with the story from Nathan McBride's view point and I don't have to balance a number of side stories or view points along the way. This book is all action from the very first sentence. The suspense builds as the story goes along and you can not stop listening. Nathan gains a half sister and a niece in this story and some of the characters from prior books are included it this one. Can not wait for the next book in the series to come out.
I thought they were a team (Nathan & Harve) but they bring in a whiney niece
who drags the story down. All she does is whine. I loved the first
two books but I must say this is a dud. Don't waste your
money. I'm sending this book back. Sorry Mr. Peterson
More Harve and less whine.
Like action, adventures, war stories, militay happenings, historical readings-fiction, & mysteries. Unabridged only! Reader IMPORT!
The story starts of with a BANG! Then becomes more and more CAPTIVATING as the store unfolds!
This book is well worth a listening to....
The Performance was a bit of a stretch Mr Hill in the female voice. As one listens to the story is NOT of any significant problem....
Lovely story line
I was pleased
He really does a good job
I thought the scene in the house with Nate and Lauren was poignant
I haven't read the print addition so I wouldn't know. Worthless and stupid question
Lauren. She's pretty tough and smart but you still see glimpses of the little girl.
The hotel scene. I love what Nathan did and what he later tells Holly about it.
This was an intense fast paced book so it's hard to pin down one moment
This is my favorite so far even though Harv was elsewhere. I hope to see more of Gin in future books. I am definitely a fan of Mr Peterson
Well I guess I read way too many of this genre. I was talking back to the book while driving. So many things Nathan was missing at first: get the license plate, check for a tracker, call Harv........come on Nathan wake up buddy get with the program. At least Harv pointed out the lapses in judgement and it wasn't an author oversight! Lauren was a little too much of everything to be really believable but the story was gripping. I do like the way honesty was dealt with between Nathan and Lauren. So many adults don't give kids enough credit about what they can handle and lie or sugar coat. Definitely loving the series, thanks Andrew!
I enjoyed it
Nathan showing is sensitive and paternal side though not wanting to admit it.
Again, Nathan for reasons mentioned already
I don't usually like when children are charecters in books like these bec of my over protectiveness but I enyoyed still
I would absolutely reccommned this for any who like this type of genre
Nathan Mcbride's character is well developed and you feel like you are there with him going through the moment to moment decisions
When he realizes for certain Lauren is his niece by the shape and color of her eyes
When he has to break his hand to escape
A great listen from the start to the last
The book was very good,it was used for our trip over the holidays as we traveled.The suspense kept you interested as the what was going to happen next. Our 6 hour days in the car were made a pleasure with the aid of Mr. Peterson's book.
Nathan, poor sole went through may trials and tribulations, all of which captured the listener, wanting to learn what would be in store for Nathan next.
When Lauren came to rescue Nathan... gruesome, but very touching.
